Barcelona stands on a plain that slopes down from the Sierra de Collserola to the sea. Barcelona is a fabulous city and rivals all others with its extraordinary architecture, history and passionate people. Today, Barcelona balances itself on the cutting edge of architecture, intellectual life, and style. Among the city's unique delights are its Picasso Museum, palm-lined avenues, Gaudí architecture, revamped beachfront, and powerful nightlife. The famous Port Olympic is the perfect place to start a yacht charter in Barcelona.
The Costa Brava used to be defined as the Catalan coast between Barcelona and France. The Costa Brava is the best-known part of Spain's coastline. Because, although it has suffered from development, it still has unspoilt corners, sheltered coves, some of the most attractive scenery in the Mediterranean for a sailing vacation.
Port Olímpic between Icaria and Barceloneta Beaches was built up for the 1992 Olympic Games, so it now contains a fancy marina with a number of bars and restaurants. Its dominant twin towers, visible from nearly any point on the beach, house the luxe Hotel Arts Barcelona. The marina can be easily reach by metro at station Ciutadella Vila Olimpica and is a perfect marina to start a yacht charter in Barcelona.
